This is Lottie, our dog
this is Eddie, Lottie's brother and my friends Kathy and James' dog. We were near neighbours on the same road and they now live 5 mins walk away instead of 5 seconds.
Kathy and I are very close and the dogs meet up several times a week, play together, sleep over- you get the picture. Its a bit like children who are always in and out of each other's houses, they become a memeber of the other family, maybe start to call their friend's mum auntie and the children are loved in both houses. Well that's how it is with our dogs. We love them both which ever we 'own' They are 4 years old and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. This is a breed which is at risk of many genetic health problems. We bought from a good breeder and did our research but some stuff you can't control. Yesterday Eddie had a seizure and it is likely that he has epilepsy. It is a rare condition for a cavalier.
Early days at the moment, these pics were taken today, you can see they are both fine. They are hilarious to walk together, you can see they are both fine and it is a great destresser for me just being with them- I had a busy morning at work. It was a punch in the stomach hearing the news from Kath, so we are all keeping an eye on him and it has shaken us all up. Black humour prevails, yesterday we were also thinking about Flight of the Concords, Brett is trying to impress a girl with an epileptic dog so he and Jermaine organise a fundraiser and sing this song.
Fingers crossed that Eddie is OK and episodes will be rare. I love both doggles to pieces- not a typo just a word I use.
Back with sewing stuff soon x
